Mercury Goes Retrograde On October 13

Elwanda Tulloch
  • Mercury is going retrograde on October 13, 2020 in the sign of Scorpio.
  • Expect to have some sudden but deep insights about your career and relationships.
  • How you act during Mercury in retrograde impacts your future, so act wisely.

    Even if you’re not that into astrology, you probably know that Mercury in retrograde has a bad rep for completely turning life upside down. And, oh hey, Mercury is going retrograde on October 13.

    Before you go into full-on panic mode, know this: Mercury goes retrograde three times a year, and the world is still turning. In fact, you may not have even noticed the past few retrogrades. Still, Mercury in retrograde didn’t get its reputation for throwing you a loop by accident.

    Every Mercury retrograde is slightly different, depending on the zodiac sign it happens in and where the stars are aligned at that particular moment. This one is taking place in the sign of Scorpio, and it’s going to make you rethink a lot of things in your life, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta. But, naturally, there’s more to it than that.

    Here’s what your zodiac sign can expect from the latest Mercury in retrograde:

    Asking for a friend: What is Mercury in retrograde?

    Retrograde means that something looks like it’s moving backwards. When Mercury is in retrograde, it seems like it’s moving from east to west but, in reality, it’s still trekking along its usual west to east journey.

    FWIW, all planets go retrograde at some point. It’s just that Mercury tends to get the most attention for it. And, again, each Mercury retrograde means something a little different.

    How will October’s Mercury in retrograde impact your zodiac sign?

    This particular Mercury retrograde is connected to the planet Uranus. Mercury is tied to your mind and thinking, while Uranus represents things that are sudden. So, you may find that you have sudden—but deep—insight about something.

    Maybe you’ll realize your boss has been dropping hints about what you need to do to score a promotion, or it’ll hit you that you totally have a type in dating, which hasn’t exactly been working out for you.

    At the same time, you’ll have a sudden urge to uncover everyone’s secrets. Scorpio doesn’t do anything halfway, so you’ll be probing everyone from your BFF to your grandma for all the dirt. (Just be forewarned that you might dig something up you wish you hadn’t in the process…)

    On the money front, you’ll have some deep thoughts about how to bring in the cash you need to support the lifestyle you want. Fact of life: The bills won’t pay themselves. Does your job allow you to feel secure in how much you spend, or is it time to look for something more lucrative?

    In relationships, you’ll demand that people just give it to you straight. What’s your S.O. ~actually~ trying to say with that speech about how you both have so much stuff at each other’s places? Just spill it already.

    October’s Mercury in retrograde will affect all zodiac signs, but Scorpio and Libra will be impacted the most.

    How will Mercury in retrograde impact your sign in the future?

    Fact: Mercury in retrograde doesn’t last forever. But how you act during this time can have an effect on your future. So, take a pass on hacking your S.O.’s phone to try to figure out what they’re planning for your anniversary or interrogating your grandparents on whether your parents ~actually~ waited to have sex until marriage, like they claim. There are some things in life you just don’t need to know.

    As for your finances, it might be best to press pause on spending for a few days, so you can figure out what’s really important in life. Hey, maybe it’s time to pursue your side hustle full-time?

    But again, don’t freak out that Mercury in retrograde is happening. It will be okay—promise.
